The Pros and Cons Of Taking Summer Classes
Cassidy Garren

Over my three years in college, I have taken at least one class each summer. I have done this because I feel summer classes really help me succeed more throughout the school year and lessen my stress throughout the whole year. A lot of people take summer classes so don't feel embarrassed if you have to take classes over the summer. Summer class will really help you out in the long run.

The biggest pro about summer classes is that the class sizes are typically a lot smaller. This can help a lot because it really gives you a lot more time to connect with the professors. One of the things I usually do is that I take the classes that I know will be more difficult over the summer. It gives you more time to focus specifically on just that one class, and you won't be having to stress as much about time management with other classes that you are taking.

This being said a con of taking summer classes is not being able to have an entire free schedule over the summer. This can sometimes impact if you are able to also work at a summer job, or it can impact not being able to go back home over the summer. If this is something that you worry about you can always look into taking a class online so you will be able to take the class anywhere. The only negative aspect of taking online classes though is that you have to be extremely good at time management, otherwise you may not do so well in the class.

Overall summer classes are great for some people, and not so great for others. I feel like they really do help me though, and if you are on the edge about taking one, I would say try it out and see how you like it.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

The 2020 presidential election is coming up fast and it's important now more than ever to know the resources available to voters.

Because of this, knowing where to register if you haven't already, checking your registration status, and requesting a vote-by-mail ballot is crucial information to be aware of.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.
